#7536 closed (fixed)

mysql inspectdb unable to handle newdecimal

Reported by: Jerome Etienne <jerome.etienne@…> Owned by: nobody
Component: inspectdb Version: master
Severity: Keywords:
Cc: Triage Stage: Ready for checkin
Has patch: yes Needs documentation: no

Easy pickings: UI/UX:


doing inspectdb on a mysql newdecimal field is converted as a TextField instead of a decimal.

mysql 5 got a type "newdecimal" MYSQL_TYPE_NEWDECIMAL) and this is not handled by django inspectdb.

DATA_TYPES_REVERSE in mysql doesnt contains the FIELD_TYPE.NEWDECIMAL from mysqldb-python. So in DATA_TYPE_REVERSE, i just added

    FIELD_TYPE.NEWDECIMAL: 'DecimalField',

the patch is attached

Does MySQLdb support this, and if so what's the oldest version that does support it?
